    SSE Renewables announces construction of second utility-scale battery storage system.

    May 18, 2023 - NS Energy


      SSE Renewables has taken a Final Investment Decision to proceed with, and reached deals to deliver, its second battery energy storage system (BESS). The 150 MW project is situated at the site of SSE's former Ferrybridge coal-fired power station in West Yorkshire, England. The investment is part of the firm's GBP 12.5 bn Net Zero Acceleration Programme and means construction will now begin later this May 2023 at the site. With a grid connection confirmed for Jun 2024, the project would be 100% operational by late 2024 and is being made in conjunction with battery technology provider Sungrow Power Supply Co Ltd and construction ally OCU Services Ltd. It serves as the next chapter for Ferrybridge as a crucial location for the UK energy system, offering flexible electricity storage the region needs to totally use its growing clean power sources, such as solar and wind electricity. The news follows the recent announcement that SSE's Solar and Battery team is becoming part of SSE Renewables to progress the development of its almost 2 GW pipeline of solar and battery projects in the UK and Ireland. This development will also back SSE Renewables with its intentions to expand into Europe to pursue novel development opportunities. This will be the firm's second battery storage project in delivery. The business has a 50 MW BESS site already under construction in Salisbury, Wiltshire, set to be finalized later this 2023. As one of the crucial drivers of the UK's energy transition, SSE is investing GBP 25 bn in low carbon technology by 2030 to accelerate the transition of the UK and Ireland to net zero - creating 1000 green jobs/y in the process. SSE Renewables has roughly 2 GW of solar and battery projects now in development or under construction. These technologies are important to help SSE deliver on its Net Zero Acceleration Programme to offer clean energy necessary to decarbonize. Original Source: NS Energy,
